This place is simply amazing, a small venue that feels so very warm and cosy. My wife had a burrito and it looked and tasted delicious it was packed with filling and was served in home made tortilla which added to the authenticity. I had some tacos, the menu advised getting 2 or 3 if eating them as a a main meal and I couldn't even manage 2! Again these were served on a home made tortilla and so full of flavour. We love this place so much we have decide to come almost every time we go to the cinema. We would recommend this to our friends and even anyone we happened to meet looking for a good meal. Best part of all is they do take away

Unfortunately not a great experience at El Nido. The venue is simple but nice enough and there’s a decent selection of Mexican-themed cocktails on the drinks menu, but not good enough to balance out the disappointing food.

After being informed that the restaurant didn’t have any pork, lemonade, certain sides, jalapeños etc. we decided to choose from the pretty limited number of dishes that were still available on the menu.

The refried beans weren’t refried beans, they were just beans. One of my friends had asked for guacamole in her burrito that didn’t come, and another friend requested mild spice but was then left unable to eat the incredibly spicy food she’d been served. No one finished their meal but when we complained we were ignored for quite a long time and then offered 10% off - not really good enough when we hadn’t ate more than a couple of bites.

So yeah, I wouldn’t bother. There are far nicer restaurants in Sunderland.
